This is all very confusing. Is the post i copies below correct ?
"I always thought the same as you but the fact is I have recently discovered that candida loves alkaline and if the stomach and the digestive track are acid candida hates it. The stomach should secret the proper acids and the colon should be only slightly acid to be healthy. Alkalinity in the stomach and colon cause candida to thrive. If this surprises you, welcome to the club I too was surprised by this and since learning about it have taken positive steps toward curing myself. acid stomach = alkaline blood, alkaline stomach equals acid blood because undigested food feeds the pathogens that are causing leaky gut. "
Yes, the part about Candida thriving in alkalinity is 100% correct. I have posted the evidence to this previously:
Alkalinity stimulaqes the growth of Candida and converts Candida in to its pathogenic fungal form. It is in this fungal form that Candida forms hyphae that allow it to dig in to tissues causing tissue damage such as leaky gut.
Our intestinal flora generate the acids that keep the Candida under control. And they produce their acids primarily by the fermentation of fibers from plants. This is why I also advise against using enzyme supplements containing cellulase and hemicellulase:
